Immigrant Nation

IMMIGRANT NATION is an online platform and short film series that works at the intersection of documentary film, user generated storytelling, and social mapping to create a seamless experience that allows users to create, share, and watch personal immigration stories. At the heart of this project is a simple premise: nearly every person in the U.S. has an immigration journey -- be it their own or the voyage of a relative in the past. As the hot-button topic of immigration divides communities across the country, our shared history has the potential to create commonality between recent immigrants and those whose families have lived in the U.S. for generations. This project will create a personalized environment for users to tell their own immigration story, share their story with family and friends, and watch dynamic short documentaries created by the Immigrant Nation team. The result is an online experience that is emotional, immediate, and powerful. The Immigrant Nation platform is currently in beta and you can check it out HERE
